KILLER CROCODILE
1989, 90 min, Dir: Fabrizio De Angelis

Italy in the 1970s and ’80s was a paradise of ambitious cheapo knockoffs like KILLER CROCODILE, which fits squarely in the post-JAWS, giant-animal-run-amok rip-off subgenre yet is so much more. Written and directed by Lucio Fulci’s longtime producer Fabrizio De Angelis, the film tells the story of a crocodile grown to unnatural proportions (by way of toxic chemical dumping) that wreaks havoc on a river community. Shot back-to-back with its sequel, KILLER CROCODILE 2, the film stars Richard Anthony Crenna (son of RAMBO franchise icon Richard Crenna). The scenic authenticity of its Dominican Republic locations mixes deliriously with its rubbery croc gore to provide a one-of-a-kind cinematic feast.
